The last couple days I had not been myself, and when I woke up yesterday morning tired after an anxious sleep, and not feeling much better than the day before, I got fed up with myself.
Enough was enough. I don’t have time to be in a funk, and it’s not me. It was time to tackle the problem, which clearly wasn’t going away.
Initially I thought I was just overwhelmed after glancing into the abyss of everything I had decided I would accomplish. After a bit more honest digging, I realised it came down to two thoughts buried deep down:
- In trying to fit everything in, I didn’t think I was spending enough time mastering my craft in my own time, and that it was going to take FOREVER to learn all there is to know, and break back into working in the industry that I love (Environmental Science)
- I didn’t think I was saving enough money to accomplish the things I wanted to next year
The answers to these seem obvious right?
- Spend more time studying
- Spend more time working
My schedule is always packed solid, so something had got to go, or at least be downsized.
After a bit of juggling, and getting a bit ruthless with my schedule, I think I may have figured it out! As soon as I came to my new schedule, it felt like an elephant-sized weight had lifted from my shoulders! The proof will be in the pudding… (or at least tomorrow’s blog…).
I hope you’re smashing your goals today!
